The Line

Forms

Forms is a wordless story about encounters and disagreements with forms that will give children, youngsters, and adults a lot to talk about.

The sky has darkened and Mother Bear knows it is time to hibernate, but Baby Bear does not want to. The little one has no desire to walk into a narrow cave. And since he is a brave bear and thinks he knows it all, he is not afraid to be alone, nor of cold or hunger… But he also does not want to leave his mother alone.

A line is a character in this original book. As a matter of fact, it is a restless line drawn with a pencil that one day gets bored of being traced on the squared page of an exercise book, and decides to escape from the classroom. So, very happily, it leaves to see the world. That is how this line arrives in a city, climbs high mountains, and meets the sea, where it faces fearsome pirates. That is when readers realize that the actual main character of this story is a boy named Leonardo, who gives free rein to his imagination in class and sets out looking for adventure while his schoolmates practice handwriting exercises. It is an illustrated album about freedom and the power of imagination authored by talented Claudia Rueda.

The Menino

Sometimes

Tenderly and humorously, Marisol Misenta – a.k.a. Isol – tells us about the life of a family after a birth of a baby. This story helps small readers to understand what caring for a newborn really means. In 2013, this author and illustrator won the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, one of the world’s most prestigious prizes in children’s literature.

Sometimes we look into the mirror and we do not recognize who is looking back at us from the other side. It is because mirrors not only reflect our body, but also our soul. Maybe that is why there is no better mirror than the eyes of a person that knows us.

A rabbit watched himself on a mirror. Since he was very concerned about his looks, he stood still, very still. He saw that his ears were even. He saw that his moustache was very long. He wrinkled his nose, and felt happy. And he jumped so many times, so high up and up, that he landed on a cloud. And on that cloud, he travelled to the stars, and – how fortunate! –, he is now living on the Moon. This story is told in the form of a poem to play around with words.

One sleeps during the daytime and the other sleeps at night. This book tells the story of 24 hours in the life of the tree and its two occupants. It is a subtle way to show that the world is wider and more diverse that anyone might think from his or her own perspective. It is an invitation to look into reality from different angles.

Since distant times, birds have fascinated humans and nurtured their imagination. Birds have symbolized diverse concepts such as liberty, innocence or peace. They have a syrinx, a vocal organ that allows them to sing. That is why it is not strange that they have been a source of inspiration for many composers down in history.

 Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). Hijo y nieto de músicos, moostró desde muy joven un g an talento musical. Su padre quiso que Ludwig sigr guiera la trayectoria de Mozart y comenzó a enseñarle piano, órgano y clarinete a temprana edad. A los 14 años Beethoven fuue nombrado organista de la corte de su ciudad natal. Tres años después, el príncipe Max imilian Franz lo envió a Vie m i na a tomar lecciones con Mozart. Pero por diferentes circunstancias Beethoven nno pudo permanecer en Vie i na ni estudiar con Mozart y sólo se vieron una vez. Se dice quue después de que escuchó a Ludwig tocar una de sus compposiciones, Wolfgang Amadeeus declaró: “¡Recuerden su nombre, ya que este joven hará hablar al mundo!”. En 17922,, un año despué p s de la muerte de Mozart, Beethoven se trasl a adó definitivamente a Vie iena, donde viviría el resto dee sus días. Ahí tomó clases de composición con Joseph Haydn d y Antonio Salieri. Muy pronto disfrutó de una gran reputtación como compositor y pianista en los círculos más distinguidos. A los 25 años de edad comenzó a padecer problemas de audición que con el paso del tiempo se convertirrían en una sordera total, lo que q haría imposible que se presentara en público como pianista o director. Aun así, Beethhoven siguió componiendo obras magníficas. Murió a los 577 años dejando un enorme leegado musical. Se le consideera uno de los más grandes comppositores de todos los tiempos mpos.

Volumes: 1 Format: 14 x 22 cm paperback Pages: 250

Characters: 260 000 Illustrations: 70 Printing: two colours

It is a fantastic and environmentalist middle-grade novel for children and youngsters. It denounces the deterioration of our environment. For the author, this deterioration is a consequence of the way people live and also of their indifference to nature. Koko considers she is “disorderly, forgetful and quite absent-minded.” She lives in the future, in a barren land devastated by an ecological disaster caused by human foolishness. Koko also has a tail like monkeys that helps her to climb trees. Like Homer’s Odysseus, this small girl starts a journey full of dangers and peculiar characters. On her way, she meets Grandia, a terrible woman with one eye, who tries to eat her, and a good sorcerer named Jörgund, who lives in two worlds: dreams and reality.

El incierto final de la reina Nefertiti

Great Enigmas of Humanity (New Extended Edition)

El Antiguo Egipto ha sido siempre una fuente inagotable de enigmas, muchos de los cuales siguen fascinando aún hoy a la humanidad. Este es el caso de la bella reina Nefertiti, de la que dejan de tenerse noticias tras ser abandonada por el faraón Amenofis IV. ¿Qué misterio acecha tras su desaparición?

RIGHTS SOLD SLOVAK.

D

urante el reinado del faraón Amenofis IV, también conocido como Ajenatón, que transcurrió alrededor del siglo XIV a.C., se llevaron a cabo profundas reformas que transformaron la sociedad del Antiguo Egipto. Parte del mérito de este efectivo reformismo, que modernizó más aún la enigmática civilización egipcia, se debe a Nefertiti, esposa del faraón y sin duda su principal consejera. La reina Nefertiti desapareció de la vida pública poco después, y el mismo Amenofis IV se encargó de borrar sus huellas en la historia, para lo que ordenó la destrucción de las estatuas erigidas en su honor y borrar su nombre de los distintos monumentos.

La vida conocida de Nefertiti Aunque aún sigue abierto el debate sobre sus orígenes, se suele señalar a Nefertiti como la hija primogénita del general Aya, hermano mayor de la reina Tiy, que fue esposa principal del faraón Amenofis III. Nefertiti, cuyo verdadero nombre era Nofretete (que significa «la hermosa ha llegado»), pasó su infancia en compañía de su hermana menor, Mutnedjemet, fruto de la unión de su padre con su segunda esposa y cuatro años menor que ella. En 1381 a.C., a la temprana edad de dieciséis años, Nefertiti contrajo matrimonio con su joven primo Amenofis, quien ese mismo año tuvo con Nefertiti su primer hijo y se convirtió en faraón.

EL AMARGO DESTINO DE NEFERTITI

This is a thorough compilation of unexplained events, surprising stories, strange phenomena, imaginary geographies, fantastic or unreal characters, enigmas and mysteries that scientific and technological breakthroughs have not been able to explain. It includes a large number of boxes with curious facts, unusual details, chronologies, statistical data and biographies, and an ample select iconography: drawings, large-scale photographs and plates. Durante su estancia en la fortaleza de Amarna, donde pasó los últimos años de su vida, Nefertiti fue reemplazada en sus tareas de consejera del faraón por el enigmático Semenkare. Este joven personaje, del que se dice que pudo haber mantenido relaciones amorosas con el faraón, utilizó sus influencias para restablecer el politeísmo en Egipto. Nefertiti, contraria a esa tendencia, intentó al parecer dar un golpe de Estado en defensa del dios único Atón. Sin embargo, el plan se vio frustrado con la muerte tanto de Semenkare como del faraón en su duodécimo año de reinado. Se dice que Nefertiti aprovechó el doble fallecimiento para convertir en faraón a uno de sus hijos, Tuntankamón, pero no está claro que el joven emperador fuera ni siquiera hijo de Nefertiti. Manipulado por las cúpulas del poder, el jovencísimo e inexperto Tutankamón acabó por abolir el monoteísmo y volvió a fijar en Tebas la capital de Egipto.

Busto de la reina Nefertiti conservado en el Museo Egipcio de Berlín. Aun tratándose de un modelo preliminar hallado entre los escombros del estudio del escultor Tutmés, esta pieza de caliza policromada en perfecto estado de conservación nos permite apreciar la magnífica belleza de la enigmática reina egipcia.

A su llegada al trono, Amenofis IV tenía tan solo doce años, lo cual hizo que en un primer momento su mandato se viera muy manipulado por la reina madre Tiy. Pero el faraón pronto ganó autoridad y, una vez liberado de la influencia de Tiy, inició un período de profundas reformas en el seno de la sociedad egipcia. Nefertiti, lejos de permanecer en la sombra, intervino activamente en estos cambios, que giraron principalmente en torno a la abolición del politeísmo y la adoración de un único dios: Atón. La capital de Egipto, así mismo, fue trasladada a Amarna. Un año después de dar a luz al futuro emperador Tutankamón, ocurrió algo impensable para la época: se disolvió el matrimonio entre Nefertiti y Amenofis IV. La reina, que por aquel entonces tenía treinta años, se recluyó en una fortaleza al norte de Amarna hasta la muerte por envenenamiento del faraón, momento en el que se pierde su pista, y a partir del cual todo lo que se sabe sobre ella son puras conjeturas.

Los seductores literarios ejercieron una influencia indudable en la sociedad de su época, en especial entre las clases acomodadas que tenían mayor acceso a la cultura. Sin embargo, fue otro arte, el cine, el que popularizó democráticamente los arquetipos y el savoir faire de la seducción. En la versión masculina aparecieron en primer lugar los latin lover, cuya propagación dentro de la gran pantalla tiene una sencilla explicación técnica: los cabellos castaños u oscuros quedaban mejor en blanco y negro que los rubios. Es por eso que los largometrajes de la época se llenaron de galanes de aspecto latino y alcanzaron el cenit gracias a Rodolfo Valentino, la estrella del cine mudo de los años veinte.

Rodolfo Valentino, el gran amante Rodolfo Pietro Filiberto Raffaelo Guglielmi di Valentina había nacido en Italia en 1895, dando muestras desde niño de su carácter díscolo, problemático y derrochador. Su familia fue quien le envió a Estados Unidos con el objetivo de que allí encontrara mejor fortuna, aunque sus inicios fueron

Las primeras lecciones de seducción se desprenden de las páginas de clásicos de la literatura como Las amistades peligrosas (1782), de Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, donde el vizconde de Valmont y la marquesa de Merteuil establecen un duelo de conquistas y amoríos desde la distinta posición de su sexo. Otro nombre propio de la galantería de ficción fue el personaje arquetípico de Don Juan, un libertino seductor protagonista de obras de escritores como Tirso de Molina, Calderón de la Barca, Molière, Charles Baudelaire, Alexandre Dumas, etc. Escapado de la realidad y mitificado en las letras, fue el diplomático y escritor aventurero Giacomo Casanova; a su muerte, se publicó la autobiografía Historia de mi vida (1798), en la cual detalla un suculento rosario de episodios amorosos.

especialmente difíciles. Tras dilapidar el dinero prestado por los parientes, Valentino acabó en la calle desempeñando tareas de camarero, jardinero, bailarín de clubes nocturnos e incluso gigoló de lujo, hasta que en 1917 aterrizó en Hollywood. Tras varios papeles como extra en títulos menores, le llegó la gran oportunidad con el papel protagonista de Los cuatro jinetes del Apocalipsis (Rex Ingram, 1921). Rodolfo ya era entonces Rudolph Valentino y se convertiría de forma instantánea en el prototipo de las fantasías femeninas de la época.

El fantasma de Cheltenham

En 1869, William H. Mumler fue acusado de fraude por la presentación de una serie de fotografías de supuestos espíritus. Durante siete días, la corte de Nueva York interrogó a numerosos testigos. Varios fotógrafos aseguraron que eran simples trucos que se podían realizar manipulando las fotos, y el juez admitió no poder demostrar la verdad. Durante años, los fotógrafos de espíritus fueron perseguidos en Francia, Gran Bretaña y Estados Unidos. Más tarde, para evitar la persecución, las fotografías se tomaban ante testigos. Unos estaban a favor, como Conan Doyle, el creador de Sherlock Holmes. Otros se dedicaron a demostrar el fraude, como el famoso ilusionista Harry Houdini. Algunas de las fotografías mostradas en este libro proceden de la extraordinaria colección del Museo Americano de Fotografía, fundado hace treinta años por Bill Becker, que ha recopilado más de cinco mil fotografías de finales del siglo XIX y principios del siglo XX.

EL YIN Y EL YANG

Según la filosofía tradicional china, todo el Universo está regido por dos fuerzas, dos energías principales opuestas pero complementarias. Estas fuerzas son el Yin y el Yang, y todo lo que contiene el Universo puede ser clasificado según su presencia. Ambas energías no pueden existir la una sin la otra. El Yin se asocia con lo femenino y con la oscuridad, la inactividad, la introversión y el frío. Mientras que el Yang se asocia con lo masculino y con la luz, la actividad, la extroversión y el calor. De forma gráfica, ambas se representan mediante un símbolo denominado taijitu, que en Occidente se suele conocer como símbolo del Yin y el Yang o símbolo taoísta.

Do Not Come Back Tomorrow: Stories of a Bookseller

N

E W

“I’ve always been asked whether the anecdotes I tell are true. Reader, believe it or not, it’s all true. I’ve just paid close attention and played around with the ingredients.” This is the beginning to a well-meaning book, a weekly oasis that has grown and flourished from social networks to the paper that awaits you here. And I feel that it is no longer mine, but rather that it belongs to many people that joined the commentary on the future of the bookseller. Because something should be made clear: If none of this had happened in the way that it has, if every book was put back on the same shelf with polite precision, if there were a true homage to the book and healthy reading skills, if together we created a place for meeting, peace and practice, if this us did not involve a feudal relationship, if all meant entering the ultimate great utopia, I would never have had this job and this book would not have been written. For all of the above, thank you.

My friends have always been telling me that I should write a book, because really odd things happen to me all the time. It seems like I’m a magnet for all kinds of absurd situations! And if bizarre things happen to me even when shopping at the supermarket, you can’t imagine how at the fine age of twenty-nine and, following a seven-year relationship, I was single again. There wasn’t a time I went out on the town that was not an adventure worthy of sharing, nor a Sunday afternoon that passed without ten chat windows popping open to ask me for that weekend’s update. Until I said to myself “Maybe I should write that book. After all, I obviously was already creating content and expectation”.

Sandra Broa was born in Zamora but adopted by Valladolid. Her passion for reading began at a very early age. At the age of four, she had already amassed a considerable collection of Mort & Phil comics, and by the age of eight she had already read all the books in the local library for the under fourteen. However, her penchant for writing did not emerge until much later, when at the age of twenty-nine she was single again after a relationship of over seven years. Her experiences when she went out on the town with her friends, especially with the opposite sex, led her to start a blog on her thirtieth birthday, in which she shares her adventures with other people in the same situation. Her blog “Diary of a Thirty-Year Old” promptly grabbed the public’s attention, and was named “Best Personal Blog” at the Bitácoras Awards in 2013. This accolade ultimately nudged Sandra to take the leap from the digital medium to print, publishing her first book Don’t Know Whether to Throw Myself Off the Train… Or Screw the Engine Driver, a novel in the form of a diary, which retains the fresh and unabashed style characteristic of the author.

Lots of men send intimate pictures of their body when chatting. There are ways to find out if the man you are chatting to is married. All this and much more in this book overflowing with true anecdotes, surreal conversations, comical situations and everything you can possibly imagine about Tinder. A book that explains how Tinder works and describes what its users are like, guaranteed not to leave anyone indifferent, neither those that already use the application nor those that do not rule out using it at some point.

He founded the Dolmen Editorial publishing house and has collaborated with various media in the past. His participation in this book is the logical result of the merging of his facet as publisher with that of writer and his experience in this specific and ground-breaking world of dating applications. Aina de Cos holds a Degree in Dramatic Art from the Theatre Institute of Barcelona and is a graduate of the Meisner Acting Technique taught by Javier Galitó-Cava. She first ventured into the world of dating applications in 2013 with Adopt a Guy and later with Tinder.

Dolmen brings you the story of Hanna-Barbera: the two most popular, influential and copied directors in the world of animation. The story of Hanna-Barbera is a succession of one jubilant unlikelihood after another, from the meeting of Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera as MGM employees – where they created Tom and Jerry, one of the most lasting cartoon series – to their decision to run a studio destined to supply animated films to the rising television industry. During the next almost five decades, a multitude of intimate characters would follow, marking the childhood of many generations: Yogi Bear, ScoobyDoo, The Flintstones, Top Cat and his gang, The Jetsons, The Smurfs, Jonny Quest, the drivers in Wacky Races, and The Powerpuff Girls. Hanna-Barbera is the story of a series of impressing technical achievements in the animation industry, of a solid entrepreneurial capability but, most of all, of a series of scripts, characters and situations that have – as still today – touched the lives of millions of people when there is not a single moment they are not being transmitted on television series, short films and programs that have come out of the Hanna-Barbera factory…, and which have become a part of all of us.

Here we will discover that, before Super Mario saved the Princess, Nintendo had to save itself on several occasions under extremely harsh circumstances, resorting to the most outlandish products and actions bursting with courage.

World of Spectrum is a journey in time in which we will experience the advent of an industry, that of microcomputing and the video game, which during the 1980s starred the successful and innovative Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Of British origin, Spectrum heralded a veritable revolution both within and beyond our borders. At long last, a computer was sufficiently affordable to reach the homes of millions of kids, some of whom decided to invent an industry in an improvised but marvellous manner. The magical decade of the 80s is not only worthy of being remembered for its creativity in music, cinema and television. Home technology had taken up residence in our homes forevermore.

ZOMBIE NOVEL

Apocalipsis Island

Apocalipsis Island: The Origin

Volumes: 1 Format: 15 x 21 cm paperback Pages: 292

Characters: 430 000 Printing: black & white

Finally, humankind has won the battle against the living dead and has managed to survive, although paying a high tribute. It finds itself in a society that has learned to live with zombie outbreaks, where there have been no more government elections, and where the extreme right and conservatism have been imposed. The army has been trained to put down the sporadic zombie outbreaks, and humans coexist “calmly” trying to forget a war that almost meant its extinction… It’s a mistake they will dearly pay. In the middle of all this, twenty years after the first 1985 outbreak, there’s a mishap in Mallorca. On January 5, 2010, during the eve of the Epiphany, a new mass infestation takes place in Palma’s prison, turning all the inmates into zombies. This wave of living dead sweeps the city sowing terror and chaos among its population. The army, the first line of defence against the un-dead, inexplicably retreats and the cavalcade of the Three Wise Men turns into an absolute massacre. The island is immediately put in quarantine and left to chance while two men, a carpenter and his best friend – a scientist who had just returned to Mallorca to rest after doing research on the zombie phenomenon –, will try to survive and discover what is happening.

Vicente García (Palma de Mallorca, 1971) has been related to the editorial sector for almost twenty years. A graduate technician in tourist enterprising and activities, it didn’t take him too long to understand that the tourist industry was not what attracted him most and decided to concentrate on the world of narrative related to comics and literature. A regular presence in radio broadcasting and the founder of Dolmen, a comic information magazine, he has contributed for different national and international publishers and has been writing and reading since he can remember. Apocalipsis Island is his contribution to a genre that fascinates him. He hopes to be able to write some sequences, and never tires to repeat that the explanation of that combination in the title of one Spanish word with another in English is inside the book.

In Apocalipsis Island we read that humankind survived the uprising of the zombies. And that the living recovered the planet and continued their existence adapting themselves to a new scenario. But how did the zombies manage to defeat us in our first confrontation? What led humankind to lose the first battle? What was the governments’ reaction to that crisis? What terrible secrets hid behind the resurrection of the dead? You will find the answers through Mara, an amnesiac girl who does not remember what it is to live in a word without zombies; G, a computer hacker who has become the only hope for a large number of survivors; or Henry, an engineer who was about to revolutionize the automobile industry before the zombies arrived. It’s 1985 and these are the stories that make up the puzzle of what happened in that dark age of humankind, when we could see that, even though the dead are walking on Earth, the living are still the biggest threat.

Volumes: 1 Format: 15 x 21 cm paperback Pages: 352 Characters: 470 000 Printing: black & white

Apocalipsis Island: New Origins Humankind survived the uprising of the zombies, and the living recovered their lives and continued adapting themselves to a new scenario. In Apocalipsis Island: New Origins we find out how the zombies managed to defeat us in the beginning, and how we were witnesses of the best and the worst that human beings can offer. In Apocalipsis Island: New Origins, Mara, Gerald and Xavier — the now excommunicated priest meet in the island of Mallorca not knowing that the dark forces that brought them together a couple of decades before are conspiring again, and that they will be involved in a new experiment that will take place on this “quiet island”. Will they be able to survive once more? You can find out Mara’s, Gerald’s and Xavier’s future, as well as that of other new characters, and the destiny of some of those who have appeared before in the original novel. You may also find out what happened to the survivors of Bellver Castle, as well as how an American aircraft carrier ended up broken in half in Palma Bay.

Apocalipsis Island: The Mall

The war against the zombies is over, although there are still some sequels. A large wall now separates Africa from the rest of the world, abandoning millions of people to their fate. Marc and Tony have been exiled to this continent as punishment for interfering with government experimental plans. There they will be able to see with their own eyes the conditions in which the survivors are living after decades side by side with — and fighting — hordes of zombies. There are deserts with fleets of battleships abandoned on its sands, the wall with the zombies at its feet, cities inhabited by zombies for decades, survivors driven out of their minds, and a society on the edge of its limits. And most of all, the origin of the plague that would put humankind on the brink of extinction with a new even more fierce war on the horizon.

Apocalipsis Island: Total War Z

Volumes: 1 Format: 15 x 21 cm paperback Pages: 248

Characters: 400 000 Printing: black & white

The dead have risen from their graves again and are walking in the large cities of the world. Few people have managed to survive with the scarce resources they have. A group of survivors has been able to seek refuge and fortify Palma de Mallorca’s El Corte Inglés. There they manage to make use of all its supplies, although things will not be easy when the living dead begin to gather in mass around the mall. Apocalipsis Island is today’s saga of reference in the world of zombie literature. In this sixth episode, totally independent from its predecessors, its main characters are mostly real, so real that they have paid to be included in this novel by crowd-funding. From Sofía to the head of security and the rest of the survivors, they are all real people, taking part in an original initiative in the world of literature.

Apocalipsis Island: The Final Battle Finally, many decades after the First Plague, a conflict breaks out. It seems to be the final one between humankind and the zombies. However, what should have been an easy victory for humans became more difficult, and the planet’s largest cities began to fall one after the other. While Europe is asking how it is possible that an army of brainless beings is winning the war, Marc and Tony should contribute all their knowledge about zombies to help the troops entrenched in Madrid, the only city that seems capable at that moment to resist their onslaught.

The zombies are not a shapeless and brainless mass anymore. The hordes of the non-dead are led by Zafra, more conceited than ever and with a homicidal urge to finish off all humankind. He leads the Marabunta, millions of zombies that, little by little, in a steady stream, break all human resistance. Military scientist Marc and his friend Tony continue searching for a global solution to a problem that is wiping out human presence from the face of the Earth. Marc won’t give up. He has left the Pyrenees behind and looks for an answer in Europe. His search will take him to Utopia, a zombie-proof city that is not as perfect as it seems.

The Zombies of Leningrad

The Z genre is back in Dolmen Editorial with a surprising zombie novel based on true facts.

Surprise, Z genre reader! This is a novel where all the events you are about to read really took place during the German siege of the Russian city of Leningrad.

That’s much more than in most zombie novels. All the events are based on real facts with full names. Except for a couple of fiction characters – that should not be revealed to avoid disclosing the plot –, the rest really existed and lived Leningrad’s hell. Now, you can find out what their destiny was.

Novel and history, zombie terror and cannibalism; this book describes the courage of a people who wittingly resorted to the extreme of eating human flesh rather than surrender to Hitler and his mob. Few novels have been written from the point of view of the living dead; such novels deal with imaginary characters in imaginary situations. But what were the people that ate their fellow humans in the Nazi siege of Leningrad really like? If you dare to read this book, perhaps you’ll find out.

If they can’t stop it, it will spread all over the continent and rivers of blood will be spilled. Nothing and no one will stop the dead. Being alive will become a privilege.

I will take you on a journey from Portland to Half Moon Bay. But it won’t be a pleasant trip. You will probably get splashed by mud and blood. This is war. It’s far beyond the Apocalypses.

It has been told that every ten years, during the vernal equinox, the five eldest and wisest men in the town of Embla, as guardians of their people and to insure the balance of their rich soils, gather around Moon’s Well to gaze at a face reflected on the water. Unfortunately, on that occasion, it was the face of a poor girl that, without asking for it, had become the plaything of the gods, whose invisible thrones are located in the mountains. El huerto del espantapájaros [The Scarecrow’s Garden] moves along an overwhelming chiaroscuro through a forest that entails the lyric and the darkness of Sleepy Hollow and the boundless fantasy of Danish author Isak Dinisen. This novel is a marvellous sinister story blending tension, fear and mystery in a tremendous cinematographic way, and that – as a moral fable – even lets the reader sense the deceitful odour of the flowers of evil.

Allan J. Arcal (born somewhere in La Mancha in the twentieth century) graduated in Audiovisual Communication at Universidad Europea de Madrid. This journalist (a.k.a. Jorge Arjona Calero) has worked as a radio broadcaster in Cadena Ser, and nowadays – and for the past twelve years – is a program and documentary script writer and producer for TVE’s La2. Always related to the world of fiction one way or the other, he has written, directed and played roles in short films, and has also taken his first steps as an actor in the world of advertising and series. El huerto del espantapájaros [The Scarecrow’s Garden] is his third novel – after La colina del recuerdo and Musas de alquiler – and it offers a new opportunity for his readers to “introduce themselves point-blank” into his particular universe of shadows, horror and fantasy.

Paul was to die soon. He knew it and there was nothing he could do about it. Destiny had sentenced him to death from the exact moment he had set foot on Hosting… And it was too late to prevent it. David and Martha Hollister are on their way to Hosting to inherit a distant uncle when they suffer a car accident that forces them to stay more than they had expected in an apparently quiet little town. It would be then when they would start getting acquainted with some of its peculiar residents, and discovering dark secrets and plots that should have stayed buried forever. But just like nothing seems to be what it really is in Hosting, neither are David and Martha. That way, a survival conflict between them begins and it could have an effect on the whole destiny of humanity.

Minecraft – already the bestselling game of all times and a popularity that continues to grow with no limits in sight – is not a series of short mechanical steps to get rid of a poor dragon that is minding its own business in another dimension and not bothering anybody. It is a world of countless possibilities waiting to be explored and built. And if you walk in with imagination and naivety, it’s a place to have fun by yourself or with your friends forever. Cómo divertirse con Minecraftt para siempre [How to Have Fun with Minecraft Forever] is ideal for people entering this world of small cubes for the first time, but it is still even better to teach veterans how to look at it with different eyes.

How to Have STILL MORE Fun with Minecraft Forever: Mods and Science

Volumes: 1 Format: 17 x 24 cm paperback Pages: 96

Characters: 150 000 Illustrations: 450 Printing: full colour

It’s the first and only book about Minecraft mods in Spain. Mololo, the famous and apelike YouTuber, taught you in a previous book (Cómo divertirse con Minecraft para siempre) how to have fun forever with Minecraft, as the title says. He gave you all the minor details, but he also taught you to enjoy more and to get something extra from that very “mainstream” killing the dragon thing. He also made you laugh. This second book rips open the exiting world of mods. Building stone and wooden houses is not enough for you? Does visiting the Moon to build a theme park with dinosaurs reproduced from DNA taken from fossils to amuse your own army of slaves, while enormous steam machines do all the work, calls your attention much more? Cómo divertirse AÚN MÁS con Minecraft para siempre. Mods y ciencia [How to Have STILL MORE Fun with Minecraft Forever: Mods and Science] will teach you to do just that, and to discover by yourself all the secrets of the best mods you can get. It is so exciting, if the author writes another book, we will all need a medical prescription.

Editorial Fútbol De Libro. About the Publishing House

Fútbol De Libro (FDL) is Robert Moreno’s –current F.C. Barcelona’s assistant coach- personal undertaking, in collaboration with Rafel Pol. They both have experience in the publishing sector and in football. FDL was born out of love and passion for football; out of our willingness to learn, to share, to research and to improve in every facet of football training, be it as (youth, amateur or professional) coaches, physical trainers, goalkeeper trainers, video analysts, technical secretariat members or psychologists/coaches. Our aim is to publish works on all existing training trends as well as information on subjects relating to football. Our goal is to broaden the range of knowledge of coaches, members of any technical staff and people associated with football at a competitive or educational level. In spite of the diversity in the trends we are aiming at publishing, we want to become the promoters of a new training trend that has arisen in Barcelona (Spain) called Founded Contextual Model. FDL is intended for people who want to share, discuss and improve their knowledge of football: • Certified or uncertified coaches • Football philosophers • Video analysts or scouts • Physical trainers • Football fans • Psychologists • Goalkeeper trainers • Coaches

My 4-4-2 ‘Recipe’ In his first book, Robert Moreno presents his view on the 4-4-2 system game model in a concrete and comprehensive manner. Despite the fact that the book addresses this particular system, it serves as a reference to develop other systems since most of the content is universal and can be applied to already existing systems. This is a very comprehensive book that includes multiple practical examples and analyses real game situations. It also covers both Volumes: 1 defensive and offensive transitions, Format: 17 x 24 cm and their impact on the goals scored paperback during a game, as well as the Pages: 272 offensive and defensive stages. Characters: 600 000 Illustrations: 300 The book includes a preface by Luís Printing: full colour Enrique Martínez, coach at F.C. Barcelona. Robert Moreno holds a Diploma in International Business Management and has been football coach since 2003. He was one of the pioneers of football scouting and video analysis in Spain. Moreno was a founding member and technical director of MC Sports. His expertise on the field led him to coach several teams, such as Damm, teaching preparatory courses for opponent analysis and serving as an external consultant in several clubs, including F. C. Barcelona B. He later went on to became Luis Enrique’s assistant coach at A. S. Roma, assistant coach at Celta de Vigo, and assistant coach at F. C. Barcelona.

Sports Management in a Professional Football Club Having access to the written manual, reflections and experience of a professional such as Albert as regards this unfamiliar and vague position of Sports Director is really useful. The book not only proves valuable to those of us who work in this field of sport but also to help discern and differentiate positions and occupations in sports organograms. A sports director is not the same as a technical secretary. And this misconception arises from those times in which the club structure was made up of a plenipotentiary manager, right and Volumes: 1 Characters: 600 000 left hand of the Format: 17 x 24 cm Illustrations: 34 president-in-office paperback Printing: that ran the club.

PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL Game Model: Structure, Methodology and Practical Application In his first book, Joaquín Lobón makes us question if the rules of how we need to coach are true and illustrates all play actions with a large number of practical examples. He makes us question whether or not some stereotypical approaches such as ‘tactical periodisation’ and ‘Guardiola’s combinatory style’ are the only keys to a successful team. He aims to find a good formula to develop a game model or system that allows us to establish an organisation criterion that considers all phases of the game. The book is aimed both at young coaches who are taking their first steps in coaching children and at professionals who need to give structure to their ideas. It is also addressed to coaches with a welldefined method, for it can strengthen its progress.

Leading a Team: The Art of an Strategist An interesting and educational book. A manual based on the author’s experiences aimed at helping us achieve our goals in learning, focusing on teamwork. The book is divided into three differentiated levels that range from the legal framework involved in coaching a team, to lead a team in top level competition as a coach, to define a game model and train children.

Throughout this book, the authors illustrate how to use small-scale tactics in training sessions and how this can help our team improve its technical and tactical skills as well as its cognitive and conditional aspects. Small-scale tactics, the main theme of this superb work, are used by many but only a few have reflected on this subject. With every page we turn, this method shows its unquestionable professional relevance. Opinions cannot compete with the proven experiences and references contained in this excellent revision work, which confers grandeur upon something that is considered by many as no more than an entertaining way to pass time.

The four authors of this book are Doctors in Physical Activity and Sport Science, and have written their doctoral thesis on sports performance at the University of the Basque Country (EHU/UPV). Dr. San Román is a physical trainer for professional athletes.

What Does Your Opponent Hide? Francis holds the key to produce not only professional reports about our opponents, but to know how to read them and how much information, and what sort, we need to collect. This perfectly structured book has no shortage of illustrative images and it is ideal to better understand the differences between game analysis and scouting. Its theoretical and practical nature makes reading easy, and you will find yourself immersed in the world of analysis and game dynamics from the very beginning. The book is characterised by a thorough content development whose complexity increases as knowledge is acquired. The simplicity in explaining concepts that might prove too difficult or too abstract at first is remarkable.

A mere coincidence or a particular way of connecting with creativity? A journey through chance, sciences and the game of football that invites us to understand why sometimes the ball does not go in, or how uncertainty, chaos and difficulties may prove a wonderful encouragement to keep on learning.
